Assumptions: Dangerous in Multi-Ethnic Ministry

A few weeks ago, I was with my friends Royce and Jhonny across from a resort entrance in the Dominican Republic. Here we were in our flip flops and bathing suits, holding our towels and backpacks, standing on the side of the highway waiting for a public bus. We might as well have painted a target on our backs. TOURISTS! Though he doesn’t look like it when he is with me, Jhonny is Dominican. And though I am not Dominican by birth, I...

Highways to Zion in Your Heart

One of the sacred actions of Christian worship is pilgrimage. The word “pilgrimage” may be defined as “journey made to a sacred place as an act of devotion.” The practice of pilgrimage may be traced to one of the theological emphases derived from the idea of “sacred place” connected to Hebrew worship in the Old Testament. The pilgrimage was a part of Israel’s religious life from the very beginning, attested by the patriarchal journeys...

Original Design of Worship

“Sing it like you mean it…” “Put your hands together…” “Let’s dance before the Lord this morning…” “Yeah that’s it, let’s worship…” As a person who is called by the title of “Worship Leader”, these phrases have made their way out of my mouth more than once.   Like me I’m sure you’ve fallen into the trap of using outward praise to gauge the temperature of the worship in your congregations.  And the opposite can also be true; we can...

A Call to Worship

  The “bookends of King David’s life in the Books of Chronicles are the two great events that the shape the worship life of ancient Israel. The first is the installation of the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem (1 Chron 15-16). The second is the preparation for the building of the God’s temple in Jerusalem (1 Chron 28-29). Both accounts conclude with doxology and contribute purposefully to the recurrent themes of Chronicles as...

A Multi-Ethnic Worship Leader Is … A Learner

A few years ago a good friend of mine said, “Our worship flows from our understanding of God’s heart.”  This has stuck with me on a really deep level.  And this has changed the way I approached multicultural worship.  When I first started pursing the vision for multicultural worship in 2005 I focused heavily on singing songs in different languages. (I still do.)  And I did that because I believe that’s where part of my gifting and...

A Multi-Ethnic Worship Leader Is … Courageous

Courage is one of those attributes one normally associates with firefighters, police, and other public servants. Rarely do people call musicians courageous, unless they happen to be taking a particularly unpopular stance on a highly political issue. But I believe worship leaders in multi-ethnic contexts are often courageous. As a matter of fact, in order to be successful doing multi-ethnic worship music ministry, you must be...
